From Real-Time Emulation to ASIC Integration for Image Processing Applications, Ivan C. Kraljic, Georges M. Quénot and Bertrand Zavidovique, IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, 4(3):391-404, September 1996.

A methodology for automatically deriving image processing ASICs from their real-time emulation on the Data-Flow Functional Computer is presented. The aim of the method is to reduce the time and effort required for synthesizing and validating ASICs after emulation. This is achieved by optimizing the architecture validated on the emulator and integrating the optimized resources. This paper presents the derivation of a 1100 MIPS defect detector.
